All AUPPHS-FA students, faculty, and staff will be required to submit the AUPPHS-FA Covid Health Declaration Form (HDF) online daily if they plan to come to campus. The HDF may be accessed via QR Code in the back of the student ID card for students and via SIS login for faculty and staff. It is recommended to be completed before coming to campus. Printed copies can also be filled out manually at the entrance to campus, in case of technical challenges.
Entry to the Campus will be dependent upon the Color Code resulting from answers to the HDF questionnaire.
- Red: No entry will be allowed
- Orange: Further assessment by AUPP Nurse to determine if student will be allowed entry or not
- Green: Entry will be allowed
At this time, all visitors to AUPPHS-FA will be pre-screened before visiting campus is permitted. Relevant parties and offices inviting visitors will inform AUPP Operations of the visit to ensure a welcoming experience.
All visitors to AUPPHS-FA will be required to submit the Health Declaration Google Form before entering the AUPP campus, which can also be accessed at our campus entry. Our guard will also require proof of vaccination before entry is granted.
Even if you are taking classes online, you will need to complete the health declaration form prior to participating in any in-person activities, such as meeting with a staff member, visiting the library, or attending a campus event, so we encourage you to complete the form now. If you are not attending any classes or activities in person, you do not need to submit a health declaration form.
AUPP High School faculty, staff, and campus guests/visitors should use the front and side entrance of the building. Students will make their way to the building entrance designated for the High School as shown on the map below:
- A separate entrance for high school students (north side entrance of the building)
- Temperature check and hand sanitizer at the main gate and at the building entrance
- Scan StopCovid QR before entering campus
- Classrooms are set up with social distancing for a maximum number of allowed students in one room as per MoEYS and MOH guidelines
- Reminders on 3 DO’s and 3 DON’Ts visible all-around campus
The safety of our students and employees is our top priority. Intentionally providing incorrect information may result in progressive disciplinary action, up to and including student conduct violations or termination of employment.
Vaccines do not provide 100% protection against COVID-19, and the efficacy length is still unknown. All individuals should follow health and safety protocols consistent with their level of risk.
The student will be attended to and cared for by the AUPP nurse and brought to the designated isolation area in AUPP. Parents will be immediately contacted to pick-up their child and MOH hotline 115 will also be informed of the positive case.
Students should immediately inform the Administration office. Faculty and staff should immediately inform HR Office. The AUPP Nurse will continue to follow up with those who’ve tested positive for COVID-19 and assist the COVID Response Team to ensure appropriate contact tracing within the AUPP High School community.
If you are experiencing COVID like symptoms and are generally feeling unwell, we recommend you go to a clinic or hospital of your choice to get tested. You may contact the school nurse to get advice and input.
Guidelines require us to approach general and close contacts differently. Please refer to our definitions of general and close contacts, and follow the protocol as follows:
- In case of general contact, you must isolate for at least five (5) days.
- In case of close contact, you must isolate for at least seven (7) days.
Note: The Guidance can be changed and updated anytime according to local and international guidelines.
Before leaving isolation, you must perform a rapid antigen test and test negative to leave isolation. If the result is still negative, and no symptoms are observed, you will be cleared to come back to campus after the last isolation day.
In the event of a positive rapid antigen test, please proceed to the nearest medical center or hospital for a confirmatory PCR test.
Proof of negative test (medical certificate or doctors’ certificate) should be presented before being allowed back on campus.
For faculty, a Return to Work Self Declaration Form should be approved by your immediate supervisor/head and validated by the HR Department. An original copy of the form should be submitted to HR upon return to campus.
